higher mark, up chiselling on the mileage stickers on cars. it improves our energy efficiency. that's a good thing. that is spurring growth. but the kind of reforms we have on wall street have not solved the problem. look at what happened last week's at usb, not only wild and irresponsible behavior, but then we have attorney general holder determining that he general holderubs the fullest -- attorney general holders a betty cannot prosecute ubs because he is afraid ubs is too big to shut down and would destroy financial markets. i thought dodd-frank was supposed to fix that. what was so disconcerting was the democrats did not join senator grassley in their u.n outcry about that protect the integrity of financial markets. it is something that should be bipartisan. but it is not, apparently. that is an example of regulation cannot afford. not all it is it is expensive, it's keeping people from getting loans, and it is impeding economic growth, which we need to pay for that column i talked about. host: on twitter -- guest: it is not. it is something people gravitate to because they use a r

big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl

states that are republican, where they're aggressively promoting pro energy drilling policies to get at the national resources and of course, the big story that you mentioned, paul, is what's happening with right to work, it wasn't just michigan, sometimes we forget earlier indiana became a right to work state, too, so, two midwestern states that have traditionally been pretty heavily unionized moved to right to work and i wouldn't be surprised if next year we see a couple more states fall. >> interesting contrast in maryland and virginia, neighboring states. you have in virginia, a republican governor cutting taxes, cutting spending. in maryland, you have a liberal democratic governor who's raised tacks all kinds of taxes, income taxes, gas taxes sales taxes, you name it. as a result virginia has a job growth rate that is three times that of maryland. virginia has a lower unemployment rate. so you see that contrast and paul, i think in this election, it actually worked to the president's benefit in some of the swing states like o-ohio and virginia and you had the voters in the states e

driven decline in energy prices well beyond what the markets are handicapping. i can't say that's a 2013 event but it does seem like the clues are piling up in that direction. that would be tremendously bullish. that's an underappreciated element of a pos 90s boom. very cheap energy without being driven by economic weakness. that's one thing. and then i guess on the potential negative side i really do think that there's always the chance that the central banks have kind of, you know, kind of -- they've basically have the system in therapy right now and they think they have the medical dosages right in terms of free money. and if they sort of lose control, whether it's in europe or somewhere else, i really do think the markets should be unprepared for that if we go down a few months down that road. >> mike, ezra, good to have you on the program. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> have a great new year. >>> up next on the "the wall street journal report," the faces that made the news of 2013 on our show. we will bring you the >>> the meerz deens bend winter event is back with a perfect

development and bursts of energy in certain cities? >> very important. because one, of course, as inventory shrinks and prices increase, there's a greater demand for new construction. also, most americans' net worth is tied into their homes and now their net worth has gone up so they're more optimistic about the economy, and will spend more. also people can sell their homes and move to other places where there are jobs. and there is also going to be a free-up of entry-level housing as well. >> so what kind of a year are you expecting in 2013? >> i think a good year. i think if the government can just get out of the way, go ahead and tell us what the rules are going to be, whatever they're going to be. make the rules step up to the plate and act responsibly, make some decisions. and then i think the free market system and our business leaders and businesses, small business owners, will make it work. >> are a lot of people in business talking about what's going on with guns and the potential for new gun legislation? i mean, this week we saw sporting goods chain dick's stop selling a
